  • The Discipline of Major Incident Management
    The Discipline of Major Incident Management
    Richard Josey, Solution Architect, Edge Service Management by Unisys Recorded: Dec 10 2015 48 mins
    Major incidents are characterized by a high level of complexity and high priority to the business. The resolution of these mandates a team of specialists with diverse skills and extensive communication both within the team of resolvers and with the users. If you have the right set of people, processes and technology in place, a major incident need not result in confusion and chaos. The true essence of major incident management lies in not only in quick and efficient resolution of major incidents, but also in creating and delivering value within the team and outside it. In this engaging webinar, Richard Josey, Service Management Architect, discusses the operational and psychological dimensions of major incident management and highlights the key areas that organizations need to work on to ensure that they have efficient mechanisms in place to tackle major incidents.

    In today’s hyper-competitive world of digital business, uptime and performance are essential elements to a 24/7 global business and as we all know, “slow is the new downtime.” At the same time, you must rapidly and continuously introduce new services to the mix.

    How do you continue to monitor the performance of your services and underlying systems and make not only adjustments to said performance, while also rapidly introduce new services, without disrupting the user experience?

    Join us as we discuss these “changes” occurring in IT operations and some of the solutions and approaches that are available to you in order to stay competitive and maintain a sharp focus on both the needs of the business, while maintaining an engaged end user.

    Brad Seller, Solution Consultant from the Edge Service Management Advisory Group, will discuss core prerequisites and best practices for modernizing traditional Change Management in your organization, and Bob West, Vice President, Unisys Application Services, will discuss bringing DevOps into the mix to speed innovation while maintaining smooth IT operations.

    In any endeavor, having clear line of sight of the road ahead is better than “driving blind.” The constant struggle in the IT service support and IT operations disciplines is how to move from fighting day to day fires, of repeating the same tasks over and over, to one where we become more strategic, less reactive, and have the ability to anticipate and avoid problems in the future.

    Join us as we discuss how to better utilize the operational data that exists at the Service Desk to mature Incident and Problem management, to elevate our service levels by the use of end user experience monitoring and analytics, and to advance by taking advantage of new big data possibilities.
